Springtime is right around the corner and that means it’ll finally be warm enough to have our yards looking colorful and lavish!
Although the weather may ease up a bit, until it becomes HOT, a few plants won’t survive the unwavering Texas weather. We have a few fun ideas for sprucing up your landscaping just in time for spring! PS, all can be done in good fun with friends and family!
Now, you may be thinking “I’m no gardening expert,” but you don’t have to be! These gorgeous plants and flowers can either be planted by you or simply picked out by you!
In Lakes at Creekside, the landscaping and Tri Pointe Homes and Toll Brothers’ homes are gorgeous without any extra touch. The community is filled with luscious trees, beautifully clean-cut grass, lakes, flowers and bushes galore, and the homes are simply polished with perfect landscaping! Although, it never hurts to add your own personal touch at home. Think of it as nature’s pop of color as the seasons adjust.
Here are some of our very favorites!
Columbine: Columbine are red and yellow flowers that do exceptionally well in Texas. Columbine LOVE the heat and they also prefer moist air, which happens to be perfect! They’re gorgeous for that pop of color you’re looking for and only need to be trimmed once some of the foliage is spent! As an added bonus, these flowers are hummingbirds’ favorite!
Coreopsis: These yellow, daisy-like flowers bloom whether they’re in the bright sun, or the shade! They’re the perfect little flower for the summer Texas Weather! Butterflies will love being around your home if you decide to plant some lovely Coreopsis! (Prune the plant of spent blooms, and they are likely to bloom more often!)
Plumbago: Plumbago flowers are known to be attractive. They are either light blue, or white as they bloom and are accompanied by gorgeous green foliage! Whenever winter comes, all you have to do is cut them back, and they’ll be ready to grow again once spring returns… The perfect little Texas flower!
Rock Roses: These flowers ADORE the spring. They look very similar to the hibiscus flower, and boy are they pretty! Their bright pink color is sure to bring eyes to your yard! (Don’t be afraid to show off)
Now that you have a few lovely ideas for a spring full of blooming, butterflies and hummingbirds, let your gardener know of all your dreams, or make an adventure for yourself and get those flowers planted!
